Where was my nation founded?

I would like to know where my nation was founded. Since it cannot be traced, I would be interested if the moderators could take a look. Thanks

You could use the Internet Archive.

Edit: No, the only snapshot taken was in 2024. :/

Hi. I am Singaporen Empire. I draw countryball art and you can use them for any sort of project thing! To do that just TG me. Sadly, most nations know me as Singaporen Empire, so I can't change this name... See you around... :P

Unfortunately NSDossier doesn't seem to have recorded your regions.

If you know the date of founding, which you do because (apart from anything else) this has just been pointed out, then you might be able to find its original location via a site that is called 'The Wayback Machine'.

Thank you, but I still haven't found a workable solution. Does anyone have any other ideas?

Yes, but it takes a bit of technical skill. You need to be able to unzip an XML file, then search the XML file

How old is your nation? Figure out what date you were founded. Then go to here:
https://www.nationstates.net/page=archive

Whether you were founded before or after Frontiers were a thing, you can download the Nations file for that date and search for your nation. I'd expect it to include your region in the data (though I could be wrong)

If you were founded before Frontiers were a thing, you might want to download the Regions XML file for that date. Then you just need to check the Pacifics for your nation name. The only reason to try Regions instead of Nations file is because the file is smaller.

Hope that makes some sense

The earliest record has you in Concord, around seventeen hours after you were founded.

Since Concord is a Frontier, It is like you were founded there, but it is not beyond the realm of possibility that you were founded elsewhere and moved to Concord by joining through a recruitment telegram within the span of those seventeen hours. I'm not aware of anyone with records detailed enough to clarify beyond that.
